Pours hazy New England style ipa. Minimal head.

Dankness of galaxy immediately evident.

I enjoy the flavor ,but not huge fan of single hop galaxy beers. Needs a complimentary hop for this beer to shine

Mouthfeel solid for style

Overall solid beer but lack of complexity holds this beer back from being excellent

Poured from a 32 oz growler into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque golden yellow color with a half-finger of creamy white head. The head leaves a solid crown of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of lime, pineapple, and honeydew melon, followed by some mango and orange. There's some sweet bread and herbaceous notes on the back end. This is definitely a Galaxy beer.

The flavor is all about the peach and pineapple up front, then comes a huge wave of key lime pie, honeydew melon, mango, and lemon meringue. Finishes with some basil and pine and the absolute foggiest idea of doughy malt.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, yet very slick and oily.

Overall, Galaxy is my favorite hop and it is utilized brilliantly in this beer. It has all the pineapple you come to expect from Southern Hemisphere hops, as well as that herbaceous, basil-like note that is both spicy and sweet. So damn good.

L - pours an impenetrably thick yeasty yellow haze. Like a sandstorm in my glass. Usually some light makes it through a beer of this color, but not today.

S - fiery, zesty citrus rind. Lemon, orange, lime. Silky vanilla pineapple peeks through at the end to add a delightful sweetness. Bready and peppery.

T - gentle and dripping with hops. Slightly restrained taste compared to the nose, but chock full of pineapple and doughy goodness. Getting a really light orange juice acidity. I guess you could say pear as well as lime. Booze comes out the more it warms and piles on the zesty tang. Buckets of yeast and peach. Acidic bitterness tingles long after the sip.

F - soft and creamy. Glides on the tongue with the perfect viscous balance of velvet and fluff. Pretty nice.

O - this is definitely hopped. Extensively. Incredibly robust and smooth though. Handles those hops beautifully.
